Blog challenge card and chit chat...

OK so am I the ONLY one who runs out of envelopes??? I ran out on the weekend when I was addressing my Christmas cards and birthday cards for the month of December....ugh!
So I continued at least writing INSIDE my cards and will need to get to the store soon to get envelopes. I have birthdays that have passed, birthdays coming up and I really need to get those and my holiday cards mailed....lol
Here is a card that I had made for Jen70's blog challenge last Saturday. It's one of my birthday cards I'm giving out for the month of December. I didn't stamp a sentiment on the front but wrote on the inside....good enough right?
Are you all tired of this snowman yet? hmmmmm....I'm not...lol
Supplies:
Stamps: Merry & Bright
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, WW and Winter Bright SSK
Inks: Black Stazon, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Wide Celery Ribbon, Blue Gingham, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8"Circle Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, White Signo Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Liquid Pearls Opal
